Our County Fair.
We hope that no one will forget the
anuual Fair of the Preble County Agri
cultural Society, which will be held at
the Fair Grounds on Tuesday, Wednes
day, Thursday and Friday, September
21st, 22nd., 23nl and 24th. It should
be well attended by all classes of per
sons, we can ail wen -allow one or two
days in the year in which to enjoy our
selves and make acquaintances. It is
rell fcr the farmer to mingle and con
verse with other farmers and men of
other business and thus learn the ways,
customs, terms, needs and improve
ments of all. It certainly would be a
relief ts the mechanic for two or three
days at least in the year to leave his
shop, and associate with men who la
bor in other channels of industry, to
take their wives and little ones and en
joy a couple of days in the open air.
And for the professional man a little
out-doors exercise and sport would on-
invigorate his mind for the hard
mental work which is.beforc him. We
would say to all, then, go to the Fair;
take your family along with you, and
good mid-day luncheon also. The
grounds of the Society are large and
they are plenty of pleasant places for
open air family dinners so go one and
all and have a good pleasant time to
gether. These Societies were formed
originally for the improvement of Agri
cultural products, stock, &o., and this
still continues to be one of their princi
pal objects ; but the people have come to
look upon fair days more as they do In
England as a time when people come
together to see each other, to form new
acquaintances, and to have a few days
of respite and recreation from the cares,
business and work of life.
Cattle and sheep husbandry seem to
ns to be of the most profitable and pleas
ant agricultural enterprises, and we do
hope that the very best stock of the
county will be on exhibition at the next
Fair. This is the veay best manner iu
which a stock-grower can advertise his
The Board of Managers anticipate that
the coming Fair will be one of the lar
gest and most successful which they
have held for years in which anticipa
tion we sincerely hope they will not be
isappointcd. The track is in fine order:
and unless heavy rains should fall will
be in superb condition. The show of
fast stock will probably be large. Let
us say again, everv-body go to the Fair,
and take all the articles you can for ex
Military Parade at Camden.
0u Saturday, the 11th inst, the busy
notes of preparation were sounding
through our town. The military ele-
meut was astir to go to Camden and
join iu the demonstration. Itwas ex
pected immense numbers of the old
soldiers of the war of 1812 would be
there, and any number of Generals
and Colonels were assigned to the
coiuniaud of these old battered vete
rang. Colonel Williams, the editor of
the Register, was to command the
soldiers of the war of 1812, aud he
buckled on his tried and trusty sword
and rode down on the earlv train.
He and the commanders generally
come to time, but luc soldiers were
not there. Gen. Harris was to be the
orator of the day. He was sandwich
cd between Hon. I. E. Craig, who de-
ivercd the address of welcome, and
Judge Haines, who was to speak up
on the military history of the county.
The crowd were much di (appointed
at Gen. Harris effort to read what
he wished the crowd to hear. Craig
did passably well. Judge Haines
brief effort was a complete success
he , did not have to spell out his
piece from paper. ' Col. Williams got
his sword on under his coat so it was
as invisible as his command, except
when he bowed, the point of it stuck
out behind from under his coat-tails
like the supposed Darwinian append
age to early races of men. Still there
was a large crowd, and the meeting
generally was a success, socially. Pol
ideally we do not think it fully ans

took a lively interest in giving it the

eral of the attacliees who were in the
coaches. Notwithstanding this acci
dent, they made the "grand entry" at
noon, and commenced the afternoon
performance at two o'clock. . About
three 'o'clock a sodden hail and rain
storm came up and levelled the mena
gerie canvas to the ground, and a por
tiou of the circus tent Of course
general stampede ensued, and every
one lost their senses except Lowlow,
the clown. Hats, bonnets, parasols

all escaped with a few scratches and
